Why MAP ?
Making sure our students grow is one of our top priorities. We needed a way to measure this growth accurately. This test is computer adaptive. It assesses growth for every student whether they are on grade level, above or below. It also helps with goal setting, making students have ownership in their learning. This also helps teachers know where students are struggling and areas of strength. The test is given three times a year, the beginning of the year, after we return from winter break and at the end of the year. It is given K- 10th grade in Reading and Math. Science is also given to our 5th through 8th graders. We also like that we are able to see predictability scores for ACT using MAP. This is another great way to track growth and look at realistic goals for our students.
